10 Tunes I Couldn’t Get Enough Of This Week

| May 31, 2013

Words by Anthony Thomas

Dope tunes and the freshest local and international music news you probably didn’t know about.

Cog Goblin – Willow Beats
It’s hard not to love Willow Beats. Currently riding an enormous hype-wave, the Melbourne duo is currently on tour supporting the release of their second EP,  Alchemy. I’m particularly keen to hear this track live tonight when they take over Bowler Bar. Full details here. See you there?

Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues – SAFIA
Thanks to Pigeon for sharing this yesterday. Man, you couldn’t ask for more diversity in a song. The best part? It all works perfectly together. If only they were supporting Willow Beats tonight! Too much to ask?

No One Else Knows – Yale
I’m a big Yale fan, but this song is something else. And I mean that in a good way. Shit. Maybe it is a little cheesy, but I dig that. I dig it a lot, in fact.

Characteristic – John Lamonica
I came across this guy on Soundcloud and wish it had happened sooner. This one track is off his latest four-track, Machines, which dropped earlier this month. The whole EP is great, but I keep coming back to this track for some reason. I’ve definitely filed Lamonica next to Beacon and Digits as my favourites from the melancholic shelf.

Conversations – f y f e
I present to you this fresh track from London. It’s some serious ear candy, so sit back and enjoy that incredible voice.

Home – Austra
Austra is so fun! I feel like I’m on a super romantic getaway to an island resort when I listen to this song. Is there anything else you could ask for on a Friday afternoon?

PVC – AKRO & Flilppo Rocco
If you read this every week for the sole purpose of finding something new to dance to, then this should definitely be a winner. I can’t decide if the bass line is sexy or menacing, but either way, it makes me want to do bad things.

Mr. Alpha feat. Whisky Winter – Sid Pattni
I don’t think I can express how much I love this song! A dope release from Mark Richardson’s new label, Monocarpic, from an equally dope artist. I’ll be having a chat with Sid next week so keep your eyes peeled for more on this guy <3

Sacrifice – Simian Mobile Disco & Bicep

I’ll be the first to admit that I have an unhealthy obsession with Simian Mobile Disco. You can imagine my joy when the first thing I come across on my Friday morning Internet trawl is the new collab clip from their forthcoming EP of the same name together. Slated for a June 10 release, my anticipation is at an all time high. 

Sex Tourette’s – Abbe May
If you hadn’t seen this already, then now you have. I couldn’t help but include it because I had a really great chat with the woman herself yesterday. We talked about some great things, only proving what a remarkable woman she is. The two-part interview will be out next week!
